I miss the 80s where the first time I ever saw Transformers toys was on the toy shelves and hadn't already saw the toy from every angle and in motion several months beforehand. It made seeing a toy in the store something very special to me that I can't recapture now.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

I could see Generations becoming a TRU exclusive line, now that I think about it.

@  Xellos : (23 April 2017 - 12:14 PM)

Also, Generations weathered AOE, and the TLK line seems to be short as well, so I think we'll still be seeing some room for Generations.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 12:11 PM)

Titans aren't really wide-released anyway. About the only brick-and-mortar chain to reliably carry them is Toys R Us.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 April 2017 - 12:08 PM)

Isn't Trypticon still a long way from now?

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

They wouldn't let a big-ticket item like that get cancelled.

@  Evac : (23 April 2017 - 11:57 AM)

Counter argument: They still haven't released Trypticon.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:25 AM)

But yeah, not having any big-name media means it's the most likely, although the premiere series packaging might convince retailers to dedicate more shelf space, kinda like SW Black.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 09:24 AM)

I'd expect Generations to be the sacrificial lamb since they can't possibly stock RID any less.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:06 AM)

I'm thinking the subline that doesn't have a movie or TV show will be the one on the cutting board.

@  RichardT1977 : (23 April 2017 - 09:05 AM)

Back to TF toys: the question is whether or not retailers will be willing to commit the peg/shelf space for three sublines. And which one will be sidelined if space is at a premium.

@  unluckiness : (23 April 2017 - 06:28 AM)

No idea.

Revengeance

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2017 - 01:33 AM)

'Sides, we all know the best G.I. Joe movie is Street Fighter, even if people haven't realized it yet.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (22 April 2017 - 05:39 PM)

I thought it was... okay. Okay as a movie, kinda fun, but not quite really feeling the G.I. Joe. I heard the sequel fixed that, but I've yet to see it.

@  Daith : (22 April 2017 - 05:26 PM)

Not sure about others but tried too hard to mainstream the idea to the public, making Baroness and the future Cobra Commander Duke's ex fiance and her brother was stupid and convoluted, and the power armor was a bit dumb

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 April 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Did somebody mention wallabies?

@  Telly : (22 April 2017 - 01:38 PM)

"Walls of 'bee". walmart will be changing their name during movie time. they will now be called "walbee"

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 April 2017 - 12:49 PM)

I'm pretty sure even Hasbro reps have admitted that they went overboard with Bee repaints.

@  Rycochet : (22 April 2017 - 12:34 PM)

Parents/retailers want them, it's cost effective to produce them, therefore they get made. Walls of 'bee may not be what we want to see, but here we are.

@  Bass X0 : (22 April 2017 - 12:29 PM)

That still doesn't justify all the barely repainted Bumblebee and Optimus Prime toys in slightly different shades of their standard color scheme.

@  Rycochet : (22 April 2017 - 12:26 PM)

The movie toylines are a necessary evil at this point, they help us get nice things so I can tolerate them.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 April 2017 - 12:19 PM)

Eh, I'm more indifferent to the movies than angry.

@  Evac : (22 April 2017 - 12:04 PM)

Also, I highly doubt that. Judging by how some TR stuff hasn't been released yet (including Trypticon) and they're hyping up PotP for next year, what I'm assuming we'll see is Generations, Movieverse and RID/whatever the next cartoon is running alongside each other.

@  Evac : (22 April 2017 - 12:02 PM)

I KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENED! IT'S OBVIOUS WHAT'S HAPPENED! I WANT TO KNOW HOW WE CAN MAKE IT UNHAPPEN!

@  Telly : (22 April 2017 - 11:45 AM)

you are reacting to movies toys overtaking our beloved generations line for the next 2 years. and yes it is

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 April 2017 - 11:32 AM)

They look pretty good.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Starscream, looks better than expected. Colors work nice on him.

Magnus is a maybe. Would be definate if he were bigger.

Sideswipe... I'm gonna need to think about. I'm pretty happy with the CHUGUR.

Fireflight... SOOO weird a choice. He looks reall cool, but he also looks WAY out of character for the space cadet, childlike G1 Fireflight. He's not a character I'd ever envisioned looking "badass" before.

Fireflight looks bad ass, but he's so full of character, I almost wish he had a different name.

Not that this univere's fireflight can't be a bad ass, but my initial reaction was that he should have a different name.

Also, I'm hoping that Sideswipe's head fits on the Universe mold. This head is so perfectly Sideswipe it makes the Universe head look even lamer.

Starscream and Magnus will be buys. Will probably skip Sideswipe (though I do like the head) and Fireflight (get Shockwave instead). On the fence about Insecticon/Kickback.

Yes, that Sidewipe is PERFECT for Jackpot. That must happen. I'm not that interested in it as SS but as Jackpot SOLD.

Fireflight DOES look amazingly badass. Which is just wrong for childlike Fireflight... So conflicted.

Kickback looks even MORE awesome transformed right in both modes. LOVE HIM. He NEEDS to get repainted as Ransack as well! We need more Deluxe Insecticon love!


-ZacWilliam, wishes there were an Official Shrapnel he could demand be repainted as Chop Shop!

Ah, but in the world of the 'of/for Cybertron' games, everyone's a bad-ass!

Is it me, or can his weapon function as a cannon like Shockwave's can too? That's two, two, TWO weapons in one!

Really digging that Magnus, want going to get Prime cause I was Meh on him but he looks ace.

Fireflight also looks really good and different enough from Shockwave that I might get him.

Will probably wait to see wat Repaints Jazz and Sideswipe get since im happy with my Classics versions of them.

Starscream is a maybe and Kickback and Shockwave are must haves.

Kickback looks really nice.

Starscream looks great, but I hate those arm joints, they just don't give a good range of movement, unless there's something I'm missing.

Sideswipe looks nice, geez that's a big gun.

And I'm very impressed with UM and Fireflight's remolds, OP was a pass but I might have to buy this UM.

No reason you can't give him one or repurpose him in your personal fiction.

Right now I'm looking at him and thinking, "if I don't want him to be firefight, who could he be?"

Prime I may Skip & Wait for Ultra Magnus, even though I think UM will be smaller than WFC Prime.

I look at Starscream & think "I would love to see him painted as Armada Sreamer"

I just realized that Sideswipe's a ridiculously extensive re-tool of Jazz. That's kind of surprising, given Sideswipe's inexplicable popularity with fans. I would have thought they'd save him for his own mold.
